'This book, written by author Richard Silverton, is a super fun and magical way to bring some awareness to our forests and nature in general. I loved the details on every page. He really brought these mystical creatures to life in my head and my children’s minds as well. Each character has their own uniqueness that you just grow to love and you can see them each in your mind because of the great details Mr. Silverton used. Because of our lifestyle and how we have raised the children to this point I believe, even though they are so young, that both of my boys picked up on the importance of the trees in the story and how we are supposed to protect them. They talk about our lack of trees at our new house quite often'

am a lover of nature and all its splendor. I sometimes marvel at how
amazing everything in nature is, from the tiniest insect to the largest
of trees. In Mr. Hookumbacker and the Yella Yella Yum Yum Tree, nature
is showcased in all is beauty, but also in all the mystery and magic
that I believe is hidden within our world. The book highlights the
importance of taking care of our forests and our world, but it also
sparks imagination in both adults and children with adventure, fun
characters (with super cute and fun names) and a bit of suspense. I
really enjoyed it and rate it 4 stars! I cannot wait til my boys are
older and they can read this fun book for themselves! "

"Growing up, I always found peace when surrounded by an abundance of
trees. Many days were spent by the creek down from the old house. Other
times I ran deep among the trees to find refuge when the home life was
rough. For me personally, there has always been something magical deep
within a wooded area. After reading the book Mr Hookumbacker and the Yella Yella Yum Yum Tree, I believe in that magic more than ever.
Written by author Richard Silverton, Mr Hookumbacker and the Yella Yella Yum Yum Tree
is a fun way to help bring awareness to our forests & wooded areas.
As I read through the pages, I was taken into a world of magic &
beauty. Each character has their own unique characteristics that make
you love them even more throughout the story.
In the beginning of the story I was sort of wishing there were
illustrations but once I read further, I was happy that there were no
pictures. This left it all up to me. My mind was the creator when it
came to visualizing what each character looked like. It truly made the
story more magnificent. Do not get me wrong though- I'd LOVE to see this
made into a movie. It'd be awesome!
I'm thoroughly glad to have been given the chance to review this book.
Mr Silverton has done a great job at bringing a delightful story to his
readers (young & old). The only thing that could make this book any
better?? Another book to carry on the story."

"This little adventure starts off in the Cracking Stone Forest, where
the forest tree master, Mr. Hookumbacker, is preparing Wiggle Twig
Village for a naming ceremony of the newest bumble tum and sapling in
the forest. Bumble Tums are tiny
creatures that act as guides and tree keepers for the new saplings, and
help maintain the general health of the forest. They are named bumble
tums, because their tummy’s are striped like bumble bees! The first
naming ceremony we are introduced to is where a little bumble tum named
Cherry Petals, and her new sapling, Holly Shallina are paired up and
sent into the forest to start their lives as bumble tums and saplings.
The forest is full of excitement at night, and when the sun rises, it
settles down, and rests for the day. Saplings, especially, are expected
to be back within the confines of the forest before sunrise, otherwise
if they are caught outside when the sun rises, they take root forever
where they are. They would be exposed to the elements, and weeds, and
they would not be able to run and play as they once did."
